The Bucks and Raptors are squared away at two games each. Each team has held serve on their home court. I expect to see a line up change with Malcolm Brogdon getting the start over Eric Bledsoe. Kris Middleton scored 30 in Game 4. He will drop at least 20 tonight. Kawhi Leonard will score under his average and drop 24. Mike Powell contributions have been impressive. His minutes should increase and so should his production. Kyle Lowry continues to be aggressive offensively. His assists are down because of it. He gets 6 or under assists tonight.
Toronto’s bench must travel and play well on the road. They have not done that yet in the entire playoffs. Bucks did not have a sustain losing streak the entire season. This series is taking on the appearance of going seven games. Bucks win Game 5.
Bucks are favored by 6.5 and the total is set at 216.5. I was impressed by defensive effort of Raptors. Lean toward the under. Bucks money line is -305 on DraftKings.
